Melting Confidence

The hubs and I celebrated Valentine’s Day early because 1) crowds and prices are horrible on the 14th and 2) I’ve got another swing convention that starts up this Thursday.

Melting Pot is a chain of fondue restaurants. We ordered the four course meal, which included a cheese appetizer, a salad, meats for the entree, and of course, chocolate fondue. I’ve been running so well this week that I didn’t want to spoil it by eating a heavy meal. But we’ve been wanting to go back here on our own for a while so I figured what’s one night? I diligently avoided refined carbs until the final course. (So not a ton of bread, no potatoes, only fruits and veggies and meats.)

The waitress brings out the chocolate fondue menu. Conversation goes like this:

Her: “Here are the chocolate fondue selections. Let me know if you have any questions.”

Me, half joking: “I wish you had a sugar free version.”

Her: “Well that wouldn’t be any fun, now would it?”

Me: “………….”

To give her credit, she had no idea who she was dealing with. And if you walk into a fondue place that specializes in chocolate fondue, you should kind of expect that sort of response.

But she could have at least humored me a little bit, no?

Speaking of Valentine’s Day… have you donated to Spare a Rose yet?
